IAFM is no longer supported. I'm glad you liked it, and it might return in the future. I too am sad to see it go, as I spent many hours developing it. It was just not working out, and needed a lot more work in order to continue being supported.

I'm pretty perplexed how it could cut down your download time?

All it does is log into the FTP server or the HTTP server and download. In fact, it should take longer because it does things in a roundabout fashion (to facilitate peer to peer transfers).

The P2P aspect has been shut off for about two months now, so that would provide no benefit.

Care to elaborate on how it was improving your download speeds?

Uh.. (blush)

What i MEANT to say, is that it just cut down the windows, as it only took up one window If I was downloading, say, 4 things at once.

Also, since I'll be FORCED now lol to do it the right cursor way, how can I increase the number of dl's I can have going on at once? My PC only allows 2 at a time. I know that's a pretty basic question...

If you're using Internet Explorer, that's your limitation. For some strange reason (perhaps to "be nice", strange!), it limits downloads to 2 per server.

IAFM is conceptually quite common - the idea is based on other "download managers", such as GetRight, Go!Zilla, and Download Accelerator Plus. These programs "take over" when you download using your web browser and manage the download for you.

I personally suggest using Mozilla instead of Internet Explorer. It's cross platform, doesn't have IE's download limitation, and it's open source.

Let me know if you need any additional information, I'm happy to provide it.
